TV presenter Maya Jama has reportedly split from NBA superstar Ben Simmons following their whirlwind engagement and low-key romance amid both of their gruelling work schedules

Maya Jama has reportedly split from fiancé Ben Simmons after things 'became too much' due to work commitments.

BBC Glow Up presenter Maya, 27, reportedly called it quits with the Aussie basketball superstar last month - just a number of months into their whirlwind engagement.

Maya had been splitting her time between America and the UK in recent months, but according to reports, the Bristol-born beauty felt a strain due to her work commitments back in the UK.

Ben, 26, had popped the question to bubbly TV presenter Maya in December.

Neither Ben nor Maya officially announced their engagement, but the brunette bombshell subtly flashed her huge diamond ring on the red carpet of the BRIT Awards back in February.

When quizzed by host Mo Gilligan, Maya remained coy but gave away her engagement secret as she gushed over Ben.

Speaking to The Sun, a source claimed that Maya called off her engagement last month and is heartbroken over her decision.

“Maya called it off engagement after things came to head last month," they claimed.

“She is not going back to New York now. It’s heartbreaking for both of them, especially as they were so committed to each other.

"She has been hitting the gym a lot and spending time with her good friends.”

Mirror Online has contacted Maya and Ben's representatives for comment.

It comes as Maya had been pictured without her engagement ring this week.

The brunette bombshell had kept her romance with Ben mainly under wraps - although she did sometimes treat her adoring followers to a glimpse inside her relationship on Instagram.

Just last month, Maya wished Ben a happy birthday by posting a sweet snap of the pair enjoying some quality time together.

Before her whirlwind romance with Ben, Maya had dated Stormzy for several years.
